The finish coat will not fade, crack, chip or peel and comes witha 30 year guarantee.  Acrylic surfaces can be washed when necessary giving an essentially maintenance free surface.

Owens Corning Approved Installers of Attic/Loft Insulation

If your attic does not contain insulation, up to 30% of your heat could escape meaning it could cost you more money to heat your house.  If your attic has already been insulated we would suggest improving its performance and bring it up to current building standards.  Aside from saving you money, insulating your attic will help to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide and other environmentally polluting substances. The Owens Corning high density pink insulation used at Clane Building Works maintains insulating power over time.  Since fiber glass does not absorb moisture, it will not hold water, thereby resisting any permanent loss of u-value.

When installed it will not settle or deteriorate which ensures that the insulating value is maintained.  It is also rodent resistant.  The insulating materials in pink fiberglass insulation are non-combustile.  This natural fire resistance is unaffected by evaporation, moisture or time.  Which makes the insulation we at Clane Building Works use a very reliable product.

Water Conservation

It is estimated that 65% of water usage is domestic.  It is also estimated that with little modification to the average household, new or existing can reduce their usage by up to 50%.

Why Do It?

There are times during the year when water shortages do occur and being more water conscious can help alleviate this problem.  The water used in your home has to be collected in a reservoir, treated and pumped to your house.  (In some cases you may have your own water source or a share in a well).  The process requires energy and this energy will likely require the burning of fuel, which in turn leads to CO2 emissions. The  difference one household makes by using water more conservatively may not be huge, but if ten thousand homes did the same, the difference would be vast.

The financial benefits of reduced water usage will be apparent in your electricity or gas bills.  A simple measure to keep costs down can be found in the type of shower you install.  Also appliances such as washing machines and dishwashers come with enrgy efficiency ratings, letting you know which use the least water and power – a benefit to the environment and good news in terms of running costs.

Insulation, Ventilation & Areas of Heat Loss

Many houses have air leaks, thermal bridges and insufficient insulation.  To even think about using environmentally friendly and renewable energies it is important to first have an energy efficient house with heat losses minimised from the roof, walls, floors and windows, as well as any air leakages from vents and extractor outlets.

Effective insulation and minimal area of heat loss will reduce the energy required to heat yoir home and maximise heat retention, keeping it warmer for longer.
